Paleo, gluten free and dairy free chipotle orange chicken with roasted sweet potatoes. 30 minute one dish meal.
Sometimes you just need a quick dinner that only dirties one cooking dish and only takes about 30 minutes to make. That may seem like a tall order, but this chipotle orange chicken with roasted sweet potatoes is up for the challenge!
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
6 chicken drumsticks or thighs
2 large sweet potatoes
1 cup orange marmalade (try to find a good quality one without refined sugar)
1 tsp chipotle powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder (or minced garlic)
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup arrow root powder
Wash, peel and cube the sweet potatoes, place on a foil lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and toss until evenly coated.
Slice the orange and scatter over the sweet potatoes.
In a small bowl, combine the orange marmalade, apple cider vinegar, chipotle powder, garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Lightly coat the chicken with arrow root powder; this helps the sauce stick. Then brush about 3/4 of the sauce onto the chicken, set the rest aside. Layer the chicken on top of the oranges and sweet potatoes, and place into a 475 degree oven for 15 minutes. Turn the chicken, brush with remaining sauce, and continue roasting until the chicken is fully cooked and the juices run clear, about 10 more minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve! Enjoy!
